420,000 SF

The seven-level, 420,000 SF Fairbourne Station Parking Structure in West Valley City now provides a fifty-plus year parking structure for public visitors riding UTA buses and Trax, West Valley City employees and the office building tenants of the Fairbourne Station Office Tower. The structure is equipped with a snow-melt system built into upper level clear of snow in the wintertime as well as negating the need for snow-plow storage. Additionally, the design allows the unique inclusion of small retail spaces on the ground level that will enliven the outdoor area surrounding the parking structure. The glass curtain walls and smart design elements on the northeast corner match the surrounding buildings and connect to the adjacent office tower via a second-story sky bridge, while openings in the concrete facade bring in natural light to the 1,200 stalls inside. Utilizing a moment frame allowed for the exclusion of shear walls, thereby increasing user safety by eliminating blind spots.
